Sing Inside is built on the vital on-going donations from our friends, sponsors and patrons.
Any donation, from a small monthly sum to a large annual sponsorship, goes a long way to covering the costs of prison visits, residencies, and more.
Supporters are a big part of our community, attending our annual Friend’s events and playing a key role in discussions about services, strategy and feedback.
Become a Friend: give £5, £10, or £20 a month to become a Wren
Become a Sponsor: give £250 or £500 a year to become a Hawk
Become a Patron: give £1000+ per year to become an Eagle
If you don’t think you could make a regular donation, there are still lots of ways to get involved! We are always looking for volunteers for visits, or for help running local committees.
You can find out more about our Friend’s scheme here. If you have any questions about our support packages, please get in touch on . We are more than happy to hear from you.

Donations to Sing Inside are assumed to be unrestricted. Unless you specify that you would like your donation to be restricted to a certain area of our work (eg. restricted to a specific area, or a particular prison partnership), funds raised will support all activity involved in the running of Sing Inside. This includes direct workshop costs like travel and music purchase, as well as overhead costs that are essential to running the organisation effectively. Our first annual report and accounts will be published in mid 2020, detailing the proportion of expenditure in different areas. If you have any further questions in the meantime about how your money will be used, please contact Maisie.
